Qualcomm’s vision for 5G is a unified connectivity fabric that will connect virtually everything around us. LTE IoT -- enhanced machine type communication (eMTC) and narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) -- will be the initial 5G massive IoT solution that will connect a wide range of low-complexity IoT devices.
LTE IoT delivers a scalable platform for connecting a wide-range of consumer, enterprise, and industrial IoT applications—transforming a wide range of industries by giving machines, devices, sensors, and objects the ability to connect and communicate reliably and securely, virtually anywhere, 24/7.
Both eMTC and NB-IoT will support in-band deployment with 5G NR in 5G spectrum which is expected in 3GPP Release 16, and they will be submitted with 5G NR to meet IMT-2020 5G requirements. LTE IoT will continue to evolve to bring advanced capabilities such as grant-free uplink, and multi-hop mesh.
We are bringing global cellular connectivity to a wide variety of IoT applications by offering a comprehensive portfolio of Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ processors and LTE modems. MDM9206 (LTE multimode modem supporting Cat-M1 + Cat-NB1 + E-GPRS) is just one example of our cost-optimized, flexible, and scalable chipsets tailored to power the IoT.
Qualcomm Snapdragon is a product of Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.
5G NR is initially targeting enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) in 2019, but it will evolve to address a broader set of IoT devices and services.
Cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) communication supports enhanced automotive safety, and it will fuel the future of autonomous driving.
Private LTE networks are optimized for a wide range of industrial IoT use cases.
Cellular is enabling safer drone deployments, and will be key for coordinated operation and control.
